Fire marshals, once nominated by their commander and/or supervisor will need to undergo fire marshal training provided by Fort Huachuca Office of Fire Prevention. Upon completion of their training, they receive fire marshal certification which verifies that they are qualified and then are appointed to oversee the fire safety, fire prevention and fire evacuation procedure at their facilities. The role of the fire marshal, first and foremost, is to recognize and correct fire and life safety deficiencies, train others on fire safety, and in the event of a fire or other emergency situation, should lead their colleagues to safety and make sure the evacuation procedure is followed and that the premises are evacuated in a quick, calm and orderly fashion.

  • Offered to all employees who have been nominated by their facility manager or supervisor. The training takes place at 9:30 a.m. on the last Monday of every month. (USAICoE employees complete this training during their Facility Manager Briefing.)

Fire incidents are the last thing we want in day care centers, especially knowing that this may cause trauma to the children and consequently affect their education. Henceforth, it is a priority to train CYS staff on child care fire safety to minimize hazards and fire accidents. In addressing this matter, fire safety induction program training should be held regularly to ensure that those holding responsibilities know how to manage an evacuation procedure and undergo fire extinguisher training among other safety practices.

  • Offered to CYS employees at 9:30 a.m. on the last Tuesday of every month. Request a seat in the class through your CYS training coordinator.

Fire safety matters no matter what your occupation is and could literally be the difference between life and death. Fire safety training is required in most U.S. workplaces. The minimum standard that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires is that employees are trained on keeping themselves safe. This means knowing how to recognize signs of a fire and evacuate safely, but Facility Fire Safety training covers much more than that and includes:

Identifying Fire Hazards
Proper Procedures During an Evacuation
Fire Prevention
Fire Extinguisher Use
Authorized Cooking Appliances
Emergency Egress Preparation

  • Available to Garrison employees on request.

The classroom course begins with a discussion on fire behavior and the different types and classes of fuels/fires. Specific information on fire extinguishers is covered including the classes of extinguishers, fire extinguisher rating system, limitations of fire extinguishers, and the proper selection of fire extinguishers in relation to the class of fuel/fire encountered. Additional topics include OSHA and NFPA Standards on Portable Fire Extinguishers and interfacing with emergency responders at fire-related incidents. The practical portion of the course includes a demonstration of the proper method of using an extinguisher to extinguish a fire. Each participant will extinguish a simulated fire using an extinguisher and a digital fire simulator.

  • Available to all on request.

The Fort Huachuca Office of Fire Preventions partners with the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence Safety Office to provide annual fire extinguisher inspection for those extinguishers that are not out of hydrostatic testing date.
